Almost eight years ago I purchased my first full-frame DSLR. My Canon camera has been terrific but I have been limited with my ability to photograph in low light without a tripod. I’ve been inspired by the low light photography of my dear friend Teri Darnell. She is creating beautiful portraits of the entertainers in the clubs along Cheshire Bridge Road, in venues where there is little ambient light (www.teridarnell.com). This would not be possible without the technological advances we are now seeing in the new mirrorless cameras on the market. So, with a little nudging from Teri, I purchased a Sony, mirrorless, full-frame camera. The image above was my first attempt to photograph at night; I shot it hand-held through a window. I didn’t mention that the Sony with a 35mm lens weighs a fraction of what my Canon weighs so it will be convenient and a pleasure to carry wherever I go.
